"Breaking the vicious circle of poverty and deprivation
This brochure describes the EU’s effort to help some of its most vulnerable citizens by providing non-financial assistance. It presents statistics that indicate the current level of poverty in Europe, and describes what FEAD is; why it’s needed; whom it’s for; and how it works. The publication also gives true-life examples of how FEAD is helping people in Europe, and how assistance is administered by partners in several EU countries. An annex provides details for each country: budget, how the funds are being used, and the name and contact information of the managing authority."

"30 years ago this year, an explosion caused the meltdown of a reactor in the Chernobyl radioactive plant, in the town of Pripyat, Ukraine. 31 people were killed directly by the incident and it is still unclear how many have been affected by the radioactive waste released into the atmosphere. Three decades on, authorities are still working on stabilizing the collapsing reactor. We don’t know how long it will take until the Chernobyl area can be reinhabited; most estimates are in the hundreds of years.

The new rules, which entered into force on the 14th April, introduce an EU-wide definition of trade secrets and aim to safeguard firms against the theft of confidential information.
One of the ways this could happen is through industrial espionage. Being an issue related to one ..."

A woman is considered in the risk of poverty when she earns less than a man for the same amount and type of work and also is a single parent. The gender pay gap is considered the major trigger of female poverty and the risk of poverty among women is higher than in the case of men by ..."

(MULTI) (PDF) - Guardianship for children deprived of parental care | EU Bookshop | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"A handbook to reinforce guardianship systems to cater for the specific needs of child victims of trafficking
Guardianship for children deprived of parental care aims to strengthen the protection of children, specifically addressing the particular needs of child victims of trafficking. The EU Strategy towards the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings 2012–2016 recognises the importance of comprehensive child-sensitive protection systems, for which a robust guardianship system serves as a touchstone. Effective guardianship systems are key to preventing abuse, neglect and exploitation. Yet the roles, qualifications and competences of guardians vary from one Member State to another. This handbook, a joint publication of the European Commission and the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, is designed to help standardise guardianship practice, ensuring also that it is better equipped to deal with the specific needs of child victims of trafficking. It provides guidance and recommendations to EU Member States on strengthening their guardianship systems, setting forth the core principles, fundamental design and management of such systems. By promoting a shared understanding of the main features of a guardianship system, it aims to improve conditions for children under guardianship and promote respect for their fundamental rights"

(MULTI) -  The Idiom List: Color Idioms in Different Languages | Alan S. Kennedy | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"We tend to think of colors as ideas which all humans agree on – grass is green, flames are orange, the sky is light blue – even if different languages have different names for these colors.
As English speakers, we also tend to think of color names in terms of the "basic" ones and the more specific, secondary ones (e.g. turquoise, ochre). Think of the words that are taught to young children for color. A quick look at baby books shows that English generally has 11 basic color words:
Many people are surprised to learn, therefore, that different languages do not consider the basic colors to be the same. Some New Guinea Highland languages, for example, still have terms only for black and white (perhaps better translated as "dark" and "light"). Hanuno'o language, spoken in the Philippines, has only four basic color words: black, white, red and green. Pirahã language, spoken by an Amazonian tribe, is said to have no fixed words for colors. According to linguist Dan Everett, if you show them a red cup, they’re likely to ..."

We have all heard the word “hotspot” before, as it is used frequently and in many different contexts. However, probably not everyone is aware of its meaning when talking about migration. Europe’s recent refugee crisis provoked several talks and international meetings (the latest being last Monday in Brussels) that brought this word under the spotlight.
For this reason, “hotspot” has been chosen as IATE term of the week. It appears that “hotspot” has actually two meanings related to the ..."
